Abstract
Since the 1980’s, political debate in Sweden has questioned whether the nation’s welfare state has moved from a universal welfare model toward a selective welfare model. In connection with the debate, a third sector, the social economy sector, has evolved. The social economy demonstrates new ways to deliver welfare services with the primary goal of generating social benefit and public welfare instead of profit.

Since the 1980’s, political debate in Sweden has questioned whether the nation’s welfare state has moved from a universal welfare model toward a selective welfare model. In connection with the debate, a third sector, the social economy sector, has evolved. The social economy demonstrates new ways to deliver welfare services with the primary goal of generating social benefit and public welfare instead of profit. Within the social economy, the nation has seen the development of social enterprises for work integration. The aim of these enterprises is to reduce unemployment and to promote the inclusion of citizens who have been outside of the labour market for an extended period of their working life. This thesis aims to examine which ideas relating to the optimal organisation of the welfare state have been introduced through these new enterprises. The study is carried out through a theoretical framework for welfare models. I study the ideas brought forward through an analysis of documents connected to the enterprises in question.

The study shows that the social enterprises for work integration are hybrids in various ways. The study also confirms that old welfare models can no longer explain the changes that have occurred in Swedish society. Instead, a new welfare model needs to be developed in order to understand the changes of the welfare state seen in Sweden today. (Less)
